I share this because I hope some political geography and media geography scholars might consider contributing to the volume. Baumgartner was part of a book looking at late-night humor and American politics.
CFP: Book Chapters for Edited Volume “The Internet and the 2016
Presidential Campaign” (Edited by Jody C. Baumgartner and Terri L.
Proposal Deadline: Chapter manuscripts due by January 1, 2017. A
completed book manuscript delivered by April 1, 2017.
Virtually all aspects of political campaigns have been dramatically
changed as the result of the Internet. The increased centrality of the
Internet in citizens’ lives has had an effect on how we learn about,
view, and interact with campaigns and candidates. The online campaign
has now evolved into an extensive, sophisticated, and integral part of
presidential electioneering. Although many developments surrounding
the Internet campaign are now considered to be standard fare, there
will no doubt be a number of new developments in 2016. This is
inevitable, given the rapid rate of technological change and the
ability of citizens, news organizations, candidates, parties and
interest groups adapting to these changes.
“The Internet and the 2016 Presidential Campaign” will examine these
changes, exploring the continued evolution of the Internet’s role in
presidential campaigns. Because the Internet has affected virtually
all aspects of modern presidential campaigns, the book will be divided
into four sections. Each will contain approximately 4-5 chapters.
Proposals for each section will be considered:
Section I. Campaign Organizations and Political Networks.
Section II. Citizen Involvement: Participation and Engagement
Section III. Citizen Involvement: Knowledge and Learning.
Section IV. Political Newsmaking: Production, Delivery, and Consumption
